    Re: Playing a triplet over 2 quarter notes.

    Tim, could you give an example of what you are looking at? I'm not sure some of the replies are in line with your question about playing 3 over 2.

    Re: What is that little instrument?

    I often play for bus coach tour groups that come thru eastern Ky from all around the country. The dobro gets a fair share of "what's that thing?" interest but the mandolin probably gets the most...

    Re: What's this? 0-3-2-0

    Maybe "string-fret shorthand"? It's not really a diagram and it really only makes sense for chords. Interesting that it is so easy to use and understand but it's sort of difficult to name...

    Re: Cannot Name This Chord

    This is correct. To properly name any chord requires context in the piece. Without context and some time for some head scratching that chord could be named one or more names based on any of the 4...

    Chinqui Pin Hunting! In this version it sounds like they go to a minor chord in the B Part. I'm guessing Em or Bm maybe??.. I think I also prefer the Gmaj7 there. Not sure why but I'm having...

    Re: So if I love The SteelDrivers...

    Tyler Childers should be a good fit if you like the SteelDrivers. I'm sure he's a Stapleton fan. I would say Tyler is more Americana than BG. His songwriting is top notch. Ironically, Childers...
  14. Re: Which version of Chinquapin / Chinkapin Hunting is the "real"

    I'm a fan of both versions and can verify that both are "real" :)
